ETUDE HOUSE Dear My Enamel Eyes-Talk (RD 301, OR 201, PK 002) Swatches & Review

Etude House Dear My Enamel Eyes-talk

On average, Korean brands have new releases and collaborations every month whether it’s new packaging, new formulas, additions to existing lines or a completely new line itself. For the Korean makeup and skincare giant ETUDE HOUSE, whenever an entire collection is released, they often have promotional prices. One of their current promotional events is the Enamel Look for Fall/Winter 2016. Essentially, they chose three shades from their Dear My Enamel Lips-talk and Eyes-talk releases and combined them into a package at a discounted price.

There are three different looks, each with a lipstick and eyeshadow:

My review on the Etude House Dear My Enamel Lips-talk can be found HERE.

When purchased together, you get 30% off the retail price. You can also purchase the lipstick and eye shades separately at 20% off.

I’ll be reviewing three shades from the Dear My Enamel Eyes-Talk, a softly melting eyeshadow with high colour pay-off and long-lasting effects. There are 12 shades in this line which are separated into 5 categories based on colour undertone: Beige (BE), Brown (BR), Orange (OR), Pink (PK) and Red (RD).

These come in a clear acrylic case with snap closure and silver embossed letters on the lid. I adore the simple yet elegant lace pattern on the product itself which ties it nicely to the Dear My Enamel collection (this print is also featured on the Lips-talk tubes). Each shade currently retails at 6.80 USD each.

RD 301 Berry Berry Vitamin – A vibrant cool-toned red.

RD 301

Honestly I think this is such a nice shade … FOR LIPS. I don’t tend to wear bright reds on my lids; however, I must admit it ties in nicely with a bold red lip – especially if you use it as a transition colour with the slightest sheen peeking through.

OR 201 Afternoon Tea – A grapefruit peachy shade with satin finish.

Such a feminine shade with a slight innocence to it. This shade actually melds very nicely with RD 301 and also as a blush. Because there is a slight shine to these shadows, Afternoon Tea can work as an all over lid colour.

PK 002 Lover of Sun – Golden sand with the slightest pink undertone.

I love this shade for everyday. It brings attention to the eyes in a very natural way.

This is a new eyeshadow texture from Etude House which they claim to be a “melting shadow” – shadow that keeps colour fresh without creasing for long hours compared to cream shadows.   The texture is very creamy to the touch yet you can also tell it’s made from a powder form. If I had to compare… it’s very similar to the L’Oreal Infallible eyeshadow pots (reviewed HERE).

These blend very nicely on the lids without any tug or pull. I would highly recommend using your fingers to get the best effect from these shadows rather than a brush. I have dry lids so these do last all day. If you have oily lids, I’d definitely put an eyeshadow primer first.

In all, another fun collection from Etude House. I love how the eye shades compliment the lip shades previously released. I’m not too fond of RD301 since I won’t be wearing it on a daily basis but the formula itself gets a thumbs up. I’m interested in more brown and earthy shades such as BR402 and RD302 and will be looking to purchase those!

These are available for purchase at Etude House .

  1. Lovely review! These shadows are so pretty. So glad to hear that they don’t crease. That would be my one major worry. Did you use eye shadow primer? Thanks. 🙂

    These are truly beautiful, I think Afternoon Tea and Black Sugar would work the best for me.

    Love the stunning shots!



    1. Hey Dom.. Hi!!! Just saw you comment here. Aren’t these fabulous? I totally want! OMG!!! I’m going nuts


  3. OMG! These look fabulous! So…. I’m looking at PK001 (that pink!) and PK002 which you watched (GORGEOUS). BR402. I want that too. Omg, I’m scared. I can’t buy more! LOL. I’m off to Etude House’s website to see how much these are. You sold me girl!

    You made me want Etude House!! It’s so exciting to see Asian brands bringing out reds and pinks lately, especially given our already-puffy Asian eyes!
